Bykov, former head coach of the Russian national team, accused the IIHF of being afraid to admit political pressure 23:20

Vyacheslav Bykov, the former head coach of the Russian national team, reacted to the words of Luc Tardif, President of the International Ice Hockey Federation (IIHF), that the decision to exclude Russian hockey players from international competitions was not taken for political reasons.

“Tardif does not want to admit that it is under political pressure. He tries to appear like a strong leader.

When will we be back? It’s hard for me to even imagine, ”Bykov quotes: sports24.

Recall that the International Ice Hockey Federation previously decided to exclude Russian hockey players from participation in international tournaments, even with neutral status, and in 2023 it took from Russia the right to host the host junior world championship.

In early July 2022, the IIHF disciplinary committee rejected the Russian Ice Hockey Federation’s (RHF) appeal for admission to international competitions.

Previously, the representative of the former captain of the St. Petersburg SKA Gleb Chistyakov commented Reports of the signing of a three-year contract between Kazan “Ak Bars” and the Czech forward and rumors about his possible transfer to other clubs in the Continental Hockey League (KHL).
